King pledges new Morocco

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

MOROCCO’S King Mo­hammed VI has drawn praise for his prom­ise of sweep­ing re­forms, but some Moroc­cans warned they wanted to see con­crete re­sults. Po­lit­i­cal par­ties said his ad­dress pledg­ing re­form was his­toric and opened the way for a mod­ern Morocco that could be an ex­am­ple to the Arab world. Among the re­forms an­nounced by the king was news that the prime min­is­ter would be pop­u­larly elected with real pow­ers, and not a royal ap­point­ment.
